We’re gearing up now for next month’s Inside 3D Printing Conference and Expo in Santa Clara, hosted by MecklerMedia and running October 20-22. Not only are we excited to see what’s new once we get to the expo floor, continuing 3DPrint.com’s coverage of these great events, but now there’s a way to ease the anticipation as we have to wait another month to get there: PBS will be airing an episode of their popular SciTech Now show this week that includes coverage of April’s event in New York.
As you can see from a 5-minute teaser clip now up on the SciTech Now site, Inside 3D Printing events are attracting all manner of attention. The featured event, in New York City, saw impressive attendance, with 88 companies represented and 12,000 people streaming in to the conference to see the latest in 3D printing technology and offerings.
“In the world of tech, all eyes are on 3D printing,” the SciTech Now team states. “The new experts promise technology will revolutionize manufacturing, shrinking the need for one-size-fits-all factory production. Companies across the 3D printing industry gathered in New York City to unveil new printers, scanners, and new possibilities.”
Alan Meckler, CEO and Chairman of MecklerMedia, was on hand at the event. SciTech Now reporter Andrea Vasquez took the opportunity to interview him for some of his insights into and predictions for the 3D printing space.
“It’s going to have a huge use on the consumer side,” Meckler told her of the impact 3D printing is seeing, “but the real money that’s going to be made will come from totally revolutionizing manufacturing as we know it.”
In addition to speaking with Meckler and other leaders in the 3D printing business, Vasquez also took advantage of some of the fun sides of the technology, as she stepped into a Shapify booth from Artec 3D to have her own Shapie created following the quick full-body scan process.
Additional interviews featured in the clip of the upcoming episode are:
- Lucas Matheson, Pinshape CEO & Co-Founder
- Jonathan Jaglom, MakerBot CEO
- Anna Galdina, Artec 3D Sales
- Ioan Florea, artist: 3D printed Camero
The full episode will air this week, running on PBS on WLIW Channel 21 in New York, this Wednesday, September 16th, at 7 pm, and Saturday the 19th at 6 pm. If you won’t be near your TV at those times, or air times are different in your market, the episode will also be available later this week on their site.
“I would say almost every part of your body will be 3D printed if you need a replacement. It’s nothing short of spectacular,” Meckler noted of the far-reaching implications of the technology. “So there’s really nothing that 3D printing won’t touch.”
Keep your eyes open for a look at the goings-on at Inside 3D Printing events! This program will feature insights into the event as well as the future of the technology itself, complete with details and commentary from top sources.
